On September 6, 2013, the Flipped Learning Network™ will host the first “Flip Your Classroom Day: A Global Initiative.” On Flipped Day 9/6, educators across the globe will take a pledge to flip one lesson to experience flipped learning, possibly leading to further flipped units or an entire flipped course!

Lessons from PBS LearningMedia’s Middle School Literacy Initiative are perfect for flipping. To make it even easier for teachers, here’s a prepared lesson and some support material especially for Flipped Day. In Character Conflict: Language Immersion, a sample flip-able middle school literacy lesson, students meet Moises, a fictional young immigrant who struggles with English, while exploring internal and external character conflict through media and literacy activities.
Also, here’s a video on flipping lesson plans and a sample flipped lesson plan for designing and building a tangle-free headphone holder that you can share with your STEM and engineering design process colleagues!
